Essential oils while breastfeeding

Any essential oil and/ or breastfeeding experts know if the following oils are safe while breastfeeding?:

-cedarwood
-carrot seed
-palmerosa Guatemala
-vitex
-lavandin
-elemi
-lemon myrtle
-Melissa
-osmanthus
-sandalwood

I've been searching the Internet and books for hours and cant find an answer and its giving me a headache. Basically I want to try Doterras clary calm and elevation for postpartum depression but I want to safely breastfeed when the baby is born!

I use young living and am in quite a few fb groups, I know they make a book specifically about babies called gentle babies, but I am not sure it applies to doterra

Re: Essential oils while breastfeeding

I was looking at buying the gentle babies book, but does it talk about breastfeeding?

Re: Essential oils while breastfeeding

I know there are some oils that will regulate your hormones, and if you're breast feeding, your hormones are supposed to be not regular. It can cause you to stop producing. I had this problem with my hormone regulating flaxseed oil I was taking with my 2nd baby. My milk started drying up! I know peppermint is one to avoid, and I would guess clary sage, too, but I don't know. I know there are a few pins on Pinterest about which oils to use/avoid while breast feeding.
